Our Penthouse Premiere showcases the best-outfitted rental constructing but constructed within the metropolis — and a designer-showcase penthouse unit.
Of all of the locations I’ve lived over these 63 years, the one I keep in mind most fondly is an residence I lived in over a retailer simply off Watertown Sq. in suburban Boston throughout my school years.
The residence, positioned over a type of comfort retailer/soda fountain combos Bostonians name “spas,” wasn’t all that nice shakes: its front room had no home windows and its 4 bedrooms have been all small. But it surely did have a pleasant midcentury trendy kitchen and eating space within the again, and behind it was a coated deck that confronted due west.
And most summer time evenings, after coming house from work in downtown Boston, I might head out to that deck, placed on Kool and the Gang’s “Summer time Insanity,” gentle up a spliff and watch the solar set over a parking zone, a laundromat and the Watertown Free Public Library.
The one variations between that and the Forty third-floor penthouse terrace at Arthaus are: There’s no roof on the terrace, and the solar units over College Metropolis reasonably than a laundromat.
Okay, okay, these aren’t the one variations. The 60-foot-long Forty third-floor terrace sits on the west finish of what is going to finally be a superb, 5,460-square-foot, four-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath, two-level penthouse rental with an inside elevator.
Most of that residence proper now could be a vanilla shell, however that terrace, the kitchen and the east-facing balcony subsequent to it have been all prepared for final evening’s preview social gathering for Philly Magazine’s Penthouse Premiere at Arthaus.
And when you’ve got your eyes set on making that penthouse yours — all it would value you is $15,116,300 — you will get some design inspiration by touring the unit beneath it, on the west facet of the Forty second ground, in the course of the Penthouse Premiere, now underway by Might twenty second.
The Forty second-floor unit incorporates three bedrooms, 4 full and one half baths, 4,378 sq. ft of inside house, and two balconies — one on the northwest nook, the opposite on the northeast — with 292 sq. ft of house. Philadelphia-based inside designers Jimmy DeLaurentis, Stella Ludwig and Danica Satell have turned that unit into an opulent mixture of the trendy and the Moderne, drawing on their very own immense abilities and aptitude.
DeLaurentis did the good room and first bed room suite, whereas Ludwig did the opposite two bedrooms.
Satell made the kitchen fairly and likewise designed the butler’s pantry and powder room. She additionally selected the wallpaper for the vestibule.
The nice room and first bed room function gadgets from DeLaurentis’ James by Jimmy DeLaurentis line of bespoke furnishings, whereas the bedrooms, bogs and dressing rooms mirror Ludwig’s love of shade.
And because the nice room takes up the whole west facet of the Forty second ground, it too comes with stunning sunsets over College Metropolis. And after the solar units, the lights of the town make for enchanting sights from it.
Along with the 2 penthouses, these taking the Penthouse Premier tour also can try Arthaus’ many facilities on the sixth and seventh flooring.
